On September 14th, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko arrived in Russia’s Sochi for a working visit, and a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Most notably, at the meeting between Lukashenko and Putin, the Russian leader pledged a $1.5 billion loan to Minsk, he also underlined that the Belarusian people should resolve their issues without any foreign interference.

“We agreed that during this complicated period Moscow would grant Minsk a state loan of $1.5 billion and we will do this. I believe that our finance ministers are now working at a professional level on this issue,” Putin said.

Furthermore, he said that defense cooperation between the countries would continue, and said that joint military exercises were beginning on September 14th and they were planned last year, and were not part of some play to send a warning to the opposition in Belarus.

“We will have to continue our cooperation in defence. Of course, I am referring primarily to defence companies. We have intensive cooperation in this area, including fairly sensitive areas, such as in the military sphere.

Incidentally, today we start the military exercises that were planned last year, which are scheduled to run for several days. But, in effect, this is routine for the military. This is for the training of troops. Let me repeat to prevent conjecture: this is an event that was planned and even announced last year. After the joint exercises the Russian units will return to their permanent stations.”

In an overview, these are the key conclusions from the meeting:

  1. The abovementioned $1.5 billion loan to stabilize the situation in Belarus.
  2. The official position of Moscow on the protests is that Belarusians themselves must resolve their issues without external pressure and through internal dialogue. With whom exactly is not specified. There will be no dialogue with the Constitutional Court of the Polish-Lithuanian opposition.
  3. Putin also supported the idea of ​​holding the Constitutional Reform in Belarus, the possibility of which had already been announced by Lukashenko. No timeframes were given on this issue.
  4. It has been confirmed that Belarus will be the first to receive a batch of Russian vaccine against coronavirus.
  5. Lukashenko said that the latest events in Belarus showed that Belarus “needs to stay closer with its older brother.” Announced that he would carry out a separate speech on the prospects of the CSTO and the Eurasian Economic Union.
  6. Lukashenko also said that Belarusians live an ordinary life, and they even help to hold protest marches by freeing the streets of Minsk for them. There are red lines, but according to him, no one has crossed them yet. Lukashenko promised to keep informing Putin about the protests in his country.
  7. Russian troops that arrived in Belarus to conduct the exercises, after their completion, will leave the territory of Belarus in a planned manner.

20 years ago Alexandr Zinoviev wrote, “world domination manifests itself as an intellectual or if u prefer, a cultural diktat. this is why the amerikans have so zealously tried to bring down the intellectual and cultural common denominator of the entire world down to their own level…try to convince an amerikan that their values will destroy Russia —u will not be able”.
of course he was correct—when I was in Budva 5 month after amerikans bombed Serbia my girlfriend claimed there were amerikans on the beach—I was suspicious since she did not know English…I walked 100-200 meters…5 amerikans—“we’re in a US rock band…the US statement pays us to spread murikan “culture”

As propping up luka with a whopping 1,5Bln USD and sending troops (aaand not signals to the folks) is in no way foreign interference. For White Russia is near foreign according to current RF doctrines.

cechas vodobenikov

unlike USa w 2 million families in extreme poverty, none Belarus or Russia…keep trying—CIA insecurity amuses

AG Korvin

And your point is? Whataboutism won’t help here, intervention is intervention. The term near abroad is used by the RF to refer to the fourteen Soviet successor states other than Russia. RF doctrines are quite explicit in this matter.

Sauron

ahahahaha “whataboutism”. what a word, good one, love it

Davide Herzog

AHAHAHAHAH…You cannot go to gaypride in Minsk : it will not be !!! AHAHAHAH !!!

AG Korvin

Your comment tells for itself, fuckface boy.

Davide Herzog

Your mouth is like your head : full of shit .
May be because you go around rimming black assholes !?

AG Korvin

Don’t have to worry easy david, we let you do that, fuckface.

cechas vodobenikov

US w 1000 military bases on foreign soil—apparently u can’t comprehend your own language

Sauron

Belarus mate, we are talking about Belarus. You just run in not knowing whats happening.comment image

Davide Herzog

Apparently…?! No , in reality . Newyorkers occupy Italy since 1943 .
Nobody wants those ignorant beasts here but they stay as act of force.
Italy stands with free and democratic Belarus .??

cechas vodobenikov

these are Russians—not nazi Ukrainian—amerikans…the CIA recycles their CIA trailer park girls at SF on a regular basis—wohl and jaky are now Sauron and korvin

AG Korvin

Aww, bloating while under influence. Priceless.

Me&Myself None

You see that’s my problem with Putin, his weakling attitude of always having to justify why he did certain things to the west. Is Russia an independent nation or not? Yes, Russia should interfere since Belarus is the closest ally that Russia has right now, therefore, Putin should not have to give any explanation to anyone to why he is helping a close ally.
